Another hot day but started cooling down by the time I got around to the gym. In a strange frame of mind today. Feeling frustrated at nothing in particular (?)
Started the workout well with the chrome flaking off the 25kg calibrated plates and embedding itself half a cm into my skin. Luckily a little bit stuck out so I pinched it all tweezer like and pulled the piece out.
Weight moving alright though even if a bit sore in places. Reps feeling more comfy already but I guess compared to reps on the SSB everything feels easier.
FATIGUE SBD: 5,4,3
Squat 2x12+ @ 100kg
Front Squat 1x10+ @ 70kg
Lunges 2x12+ @ 10kg
Leg Extensions 1x12+
Reps on back squat feeling better than expected (not dog shit lol). Probably a good idea to start out conservative in intensity.
Tried out front squats and these felt pretty dodgy. Lot of overlap with SSB and feeling it. So gotta spread it out so there’s time between em.
Lunges are a good tough. Doesn’t take much weight to get in some good work after heavy squats. Quads are burning for sure lol.
Wide Grip Bench 4x10+ @ 75kg
Overhead Press 4x10+ @ 45kg
Chest Supported Row 4x12+ @40/side
Wide grip bench feeling alright. Good on my shoulders so that’s a ticked box. Wide grip never felt particularly good in the past but it’s not bad right now. Will see how it moves in future when I get back to heavy weights
OHP pretty easy but definitely lost some strength with not training the lift a while. Starting at a heavier weight moving ez than any previous Press cycle so expecting good things
Facepull 2 Sets @ 15
Lateral Raises 4 Sets @ 6
Rear Delt Flye 2 Sets @ 4
Day 2 of VolumePig complete. Quads and triceps worked hard today and they are feeling it. More to come
